A story by Cultural Ambassador/Indigenous Creative Chief John Smith Gumbula:
"GUKU Honey Dreaming"
For thousands of years Aboriginal people have regarded native bees as a very important dreaming food from Mother earth. The Aboriginal people have used native bees honey for food and tools for thousands of years. The old elders you to talk about honey being presented to Aboriginal tribal elders by the hunters as a sign of cultural respect.
Evidence has shown that Aboriginals used the wax and resin produced by native bees for fastening implements of stone to wood. They heated the resin/wax in the fire to bind the two objects together for use as hunting and gathering tools.
The honey of the native bees was also used for ceremonial use. When men were being prepared for weddings they were coated in honey and feathers and other objects were stuck to them for decoration. Baskets for carrying water were made by joining leaves and sealing them with bees wax. Aboriginal people would smear native bees honey on open wounds to prevent swelling and bacterial infections.
